I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Bloomberg L.P..

Interview Details – I applied through my campus career fair. They called me for an on campus interview. The first interview went well so they called me in for an interview the next day. After a month, I was invited to do an on-site interview. They asked me a question about linked-list reversal which I answered correctly. Then HR sent me a rejection email the same week.

Interview Question – They asked me to reverse a linked list.   Answer Question

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. in March 2013.

Interview Details – The process took well over 3 months and interviews were done both in New York and San Francisco. It was a nail-biting process but in the end they treat all their interns like gold which was great.

Interview Question – Probably not difficult as a question but I had a very long answer to the question "Why would you want to come and work here". Often it's those easy questions that you really have to give enough thought to.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was no negotiations at all.
